WOW



You, buddy, are a lowlife dirt bag piece of . You really did just try to promote Amsoil (whom your scumbag works for) by using a horrible accident as a product comparison. Didn't you?

As much as i love and swear by Amsoil, you should be stripped of any to right even say that brand name ever again.

Like I said, I love Amsoil and swear by it. But dude, you are going about advertising the wrong way here. All your doing is nailing a horrible representation of the product and making Amsoil look bad right now.

What you need to do is apologize to everyone on this site for acting like a royal douche nugget "salesman". Like you mean it.. Tone it down a notch. Amsoil is a great product and people like me buy it because we trust it and it sells itself. Had i never used the stuff, i'd probably NEVER buy it because of all your posts about it. PARTICULARLY in this thread. Try to let the prodect speak for itself because right now, your just it all up.

OP, sorry for the threadjack.


+1 to what everyone has said. Except for Tim Vipond. If you never buy Amsoil because of that moron, i'd understand. However. Your bike may have just been about due for a clutch job on top of all that.

Yeah, supporting all those American workers and their families who are employed by the oil giant BP is a real thing to do.

Accidents happen....doesn't mean you should villify the industry. BTW, there isn't an oil company in the world that hasn't had its fair share of accidents.

Hey wait...doesn't evil Exxon make basestock for your precious Amsoil???? Guess Valdez wasn't a big thing...

AMSOIL gets some of their chemical base oils from Exxon Chemical and other chemical companies. USA Exxon Chemical has a much better safety and environmental record in the US than foreign owned BP.
BP is a disaster, I've worked on many projects with them and although they have a great safety training program on the front end, it never gets implemented in the field where it really matters. I almost died a few times cuz of BP.

As for big bad oil, just saying that you not supporting BP cuz of their record is a bit hipocritical considering Exxon has done it's fair share of destruction.

Your right, it wasn't about amsoil.. But you made it all about amsoil. I'd suggesting you stop defending yourself talking about BP and the accident. It's not only un called for, but your ignorance is outshining your understanding and general overall knowledge of offshore drilling so far. Just stop.

Just to reiterate again for you.. BP may be foreign owned. But do you have any idea how many US employees they have? How about just in the gulf of Mexico?

Bottom line, you are STILL using a very tacky and uncalled for sales approach. Completely unnecessary. Please stop typing.

Oh k. Now that that's over.let's get back to the slippage.
So far what I got items.that I put to much oil(4qt) and it might have burned my plates. I haven't gotten it worked on. But I drained some oil myself
(2pints)and when I rode it I felt it sticking more. Like if it when away. But now its still.doing. and the best advice I.ve gotten was. Drain it, put a new filter and add rotella car oil in it . Idk.
Any other suggestions.
I appreciative the feed back. bless
